It is against the law for a company to discriminate against anyone on the grounds of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership. Similarly if your employees discriminate against a colleague or customer your company could be held vicariously liable for their acts, and be responsible for paying the compensation or damages to the victim of the discrimination.
Equal opportunities policy
The Equal Opportunities Policy provides specific protection to the Company in respect of the Age Discrimination Regulations that came into force in October 2006. This Policy follows ACAS guidelines to comply with the Age Discrimination Regulations, and fulfils requirements previously required by the Sex, Race and Disability Discrimination Acts and other relevant Regulations.
